Ultimately, Tesla has dominated the Chinese market. Particularly, Elon Musk & Co. have enjoyed immense success in the luxury EV space.
Geely Targets Singapore
However, brands like Geely threaten Tesla’s market dominance. Nevertheless, the Geometry series won’t be targeted at the Chinese market.
Instead, Geely looks to Singapore. In a statement announcing the Geometry series, it admitted the city-state will be its primary target. After all, Singapore is a haven for high-earners. Geely’s Geometry fleet doesn’t come cheap.
The Geometry A is the automaker’s first entry into the electric space. Evidently, there is serious interest among consumers. Geely has announced they’ve already received more than 26,000 orders.
Chinese EV Industry Grows Despite Sluggish Economy
This success is despite a trade war with the United States. Additionally, cautious consumers and sluggish economic growth plague Chinese producers.
However, automakers will spend over $300 billion on EV tech over the next 5 to 10 years. Moreover, China is the investment’s primary target.
Ultimately, Geely’s success is good news for clean energy advocates.
Let’s hope the Geometry series sparks enough competition to encourage serious innovation.
